Re: Which English accent is your favorite?
I'm from Liverpool but I don't speak Scouse. A lot of people have thought I was Irish. The ony reason I can think of is because of the way people speak in this city. Not the general ones, but those who say pyaaaaa instead of pure and devo'd instead of devastated, I could not speak like that. I used to travel a lot for work and I would say more people thought I was Irish than Scouse. An uncle at my Grandads funeral thought I had been living in Ireland. Crazy.
I can't stand hearing the Scouse accent on telly either, it's cringe-worthy. I mean, I get used to them; John Bishop, Steven Gerrard, Wayne Rooney etc, but if for some reason they interview a Scouser off the street, especially a young lad or girl we cringe. I don't know anybody who can listen to it. Anybody else have this probleYm, hearing people from there own city on telly or radio and cringing or is it just scousers?
My favourite English accent is probably 'west-country' accents, people from Devon, Bristol, Cornwall etc. Someone like Justin Lee Collins or Stephen Merchant, I could listen to them both all the time.
My favourite accent that speaks English language though has to be Welsh. Actually, Welsh or when someone from Eastern-Europe tries t speak English... Vot Ish Your Name... Hahah.
